121. Our Unfree Will: Very Strange, but Inescapable




In this episode of Exploring the Illusion of Free Will, recorded on 05/13/13, producer George Ortega explores surrealistic themes surrounding the truth that human will is completely determined.

The debate over whether humans have a free will languished for centuries in academia. In 2010, George Ortega decided it was time to move the issue to the public arena in a big way. Ortega spearheaded a buzz about free will that ultimately led to an explosion in mainstream media and Internet coverage, including cover stories by New Scientist and Scientific American Mind magazines. For a description and chronology of how he did it, see History of How Refuting Free Will Went From Academia to the Public Spotlight at http://exogenousagency.wordpress.com/2013/01/10/history-of-how-refuting-free-will-went-from-academia-to-the-public-spotlight/ The article includes over three dozen hyper-linked mainstream press articles on the topic between 2004 and 2012.

For dozens of episodes from the world's first and only ongoing initiative exclusively dedicated to exposing free will as an illusion, visit Ortega's site at http://causalconsciousness.com/. Our initiative includes two television programs - A weekly show with live call-in episodes on Manhattan's MNN, and a weekly television series cablecast to White Plains, New York, select Westchester, County, New York communities and Manhattan.
